The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh is one of the easiest attractions to experience at Walt Disney World and Disneyland for wheelchair users. The attraction and the ride vehicles are a little different at each park so we’ll take a look at both.
At the Magic Kingdom you enter using either the standard queue or the FastPass+ entrance. The attraction loads pretty slowing so the lines can back up later in the day. I would either visit in the morning or get a FastPass+ time later after you’ve used your other three for other attractions.
Once you get to the loading area let the Cast Members know that you would like to stay in your wheelchair if you want to use the wheelchair access vehicle. You may have to wait a little longer depending on where the vehicle is. If you are using an ECV you will have to transfer to a standard wheelchair.
The accessible ride vehicle has a wide door on the side so you can roll right in. There is only one seat inside so if there is more than two people in your party they will have to ride in another hunny pot. The regular attraction vehicles have two rows that can seat 2 to 3 guests.
The Cast Members will also ask you if you want to “bounce with Tigger”. This just means that the ride vehicle will rock a little during a certain parts of the attraction. The ride is not very bumpy but I would still make sure to lock the brakes on your wheelchair. There is also a seat belt inside the ride vehicle.
At Disneyland you also enter through the standard queue since it’s one of the newer attractions. The ride vehicle here is different but they still have a wheelchair accessible one so you can remain in your wheelchair. Just let the Cast Members know you would like to use it.
The accessible ride vehicle has a space for the wheelchair and an additional row behind it that can fit one, maybe two other guests. The Cast Member will rotate the wheelchair space so you can enter and then rotate it back so you are facing forward. There are rails on each side but it’s a smooth ride. The regular attraction vehicles has some movement but that has been disabled on the accessible one.
I like the ride vehicle at the Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh a little more at the Magic Kingdom since you can ride next to someone instead of in front of them. But both attractions offer great wheelchair access and are fun dark rides.
